...how Kids Konnected helps:

At Kids Konnected, we know that cancer affects the entire family. Each of your children will experience your diagnosis in a different way and with different feelings. Cancer is not an easy subject to talk about and many parents try to avoid the topic in fear that they will scare their children. At Kids Konnected, our approach is to provide a supportive environment to the children so that they can share their feelings alongside other children going through the same thing. We provide free services such as support groups, summer camps, education, and fun events that allow the children to have a break from their parents cancer diagnosis. Learn More

At Kids Konnected, we are here to offer support, understanding, community, comfort and a safe haven while you go through your parent's cancer journey. At Kids Konnected you are not alone and can share with people your age who understand what it is like to experience cancer within the family.

Through our yearly summer camps, youth leadership, support groups and events, Kids Konnected is there for you during the difficult and happy times as you go through your unique cancer experience within your family. Learn More

We provide custom care packages for the children, resources, support groups, bereavement workshops, summer camps and special events.
